The Craziest Things To Come Out Of James Franco’s Mouth

I suspect that James Franco has a touch of the “Megan Fox”-ies. No, he doesn’t suffer from aggressive sexyface (not with that hipster ‘stache, anyway) or toe-thumbs; rather, James is king of the sound byte. James Franco-isms get so bizarre sometimes that I suspect they may not be true.

The latest example: When asked what turns him on during a visit to “Inside The Actors Studio,” James said rabbits. “Sometimes rabbits, like, turn me on. I don’t know why.” Ooookay. [PopSugar]

After the jump, let’s revisit some other classic James Franco quotes: Keep reading »

Trailer Park: “The Fighter,” “The Tourist,” “The Chronicles of Narnia,” And “The Tempest”

This week’s movies are like that period in music when bands all started putting “The” in front of a noun and making that the name of their band.

It’s very inspiring and I think a lot of women will be able to relate. Lisa even started the website Secret Society of Women where women can share their deepest, darkest secrets anonymously.

Andy Cohen Is Tired Of All The Bitch Fights

I’m not surprised that Andy Cohen is ready for a change of pace from the all the “Real Housewives” cat fights that take place on his couch. During the “RHONJ” season two reunion, he even got caught in the fray when Teresa Giudice took him down in one swift panther-like movement in pursuit of Danielle Staub. Scary! Rumor is that Cohen is developing a “Housewives”-esque reality series for Bravo featuring successful gay men in New York City. Keep reading »
